1000 PeaceWomen:

1000 women for peace and justice

The 1000 PeaceWomen are activists from around the world who were collectively nominated for the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize. They are still part of our growing network of women peace activists today.

The initiative "1000 Women for the 2005 Nobel Peace Prize" is the starting point of our founding story. The women come from all regions of the world, have very different biographies and are active in different areas – locally, nationally or internationally.

What they have in common is their belief in a peaceful and just world, for which they strive with their daily, often dangerous work. Today, they link up with activists around the globe in our network Feminists Connecting for Peace.

In 2005, the book "1000 PeaceWomen Across the Globe" was published in several languages with the history of the initiative and the biographies of the nominated PeaceWomen. You can order the book via our office. On this page you can read the biographies that were compiled for the book at the time. Enter the first or last name or the country of the PeaceWoman you are looking for in the search box.
